BRITS used to the warm weather over the weekend are in for a shock as the country is set for a chilly Monday.

Temperatures will plunge after soaring temperatures of 25C on Sunday, according to the Met Office.

Easter Monday will be dry and bright across most parts of the UK, but temperatures will drop significantly after the weekend sun.

The Met Office has also said there will be frost across Scotland, and also some wintry showers seen in the North-East.

Later in the morning, temperatures of between 6 and 10C are expected across the country, but most forecasters say double figures are unlikely.

Down south, Cornwall could see slightly warmer temperatures but will also be breezy, the Met Office said.

BBC meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas said the nation will wake up to a “touch of frost first thing on Easter Monday”.

She added: ”[Easter Monday] will be a much colder day across the board. We have a brisk, northerly wind, some places reaching up to 50mph.

“Temperatures will range between 7C and 14C as the east coast bears the brunt of the cold front.”

The dry weather will offer a welcome break after showers and thunderstorms battered England and Wales throughout the night on Easter Sunday.

The Met Office warned that some communities could become cut off by flooded roads.

SUNNY WEEKEND

It comes after a weekend of record breaking temperatures, as some Brits couldn’t resist the temptation to bask in the sun.

Photographs taken on Saturday showed Brits flouting coronavirus lockdown rules as temperatures peaked at 25.5C.

The Met Office said St James’s Park in central London recorded the highest temperature on Saturday, followed by Yeovilton in Somerset, which saw the mercury rise to 25.2C.

The public is being urged to remain at home throughout the Bank Holiday Monday – with the coronavirus lockdown still in place.

But despite calls for people to stay at home – except when taking an hour’s exercise or shopping for essentials – some people still decided to hit Britain’s parks, beaches and beauty spots.  

In London the Royal Parks were full of sunseekers —some blatantly not sticking to the social distancing rules. 

It comes as the number of people to die of coronavirus in hospitals rose by 737 from 9,875 to 10,612.
